these two people. and he then became our secretary of defense. and many of us that have served thought that he was one of the best secretary of defenses we've ever had. he's currently a senior fellow at the hoover institute and a freeman foley institute of international studies. he is the michael and barbara bavarian professor at stanford university and serves as co-director of the nuclear risk reduction initiative and preventive defense project. please help me welcome our speaker this morning, former secretary of defense william perry. (applause) >> what a pleasure it is to be aboard this symbol of america's millery power, the uss macon island. what a pleasure it is to be among the men and women of our armed forces and the men and women of the first responders of the san francisco bay area. fleet week for many years in san francisco was a somewhat [inaudible] affair and it has been transformed into this great coming together by the military and the first responders, the great coming together of our uniformed personnel and a great [speaker not understood] of san francisco. this amazing
to be prepared. we try to educate them in respect that we say we'll provide the offense, you provide the defense. we talk to them about hardening their structures in a defensive measure against wild land fires. a lot of it is public education, survivability, building standards, but predominately our focus is putting the onus on the land owner, putting the onus on the private property owner, we will attempt to protect your home but the days of staying and defending your home and killing our fire fighters are done. we will not stand and defend a house that has not been prepared by a land owner and die for it. we don't do that any more. that's one of our doctrinal changes and we set forth some new guidelines with that. >> thank you. >> question, mr. secretary. >> in a large scale disaster relief, where the military is called in to assist the civilian components there is an obvious issue of how you get the command and control and in particular what telecommunications is used to support that command and control. your exercising together is very critical, i think, to working out command and cont
of a l of the defensive sectors in the s&p 500 as you made note over in the past. we see a lot of the typically defensive sectors now trading at multiples two or three times above the larger broader markets, and actually that's worrying. >> tom: couldn't the kind of situation we're seeing on the eastern seaboard, though, the short term economic of the destruction that we're seeing -- forget the rebuilding for now. couldn't that lead to a more defensive stance on the parliament of shareholders? >> it could, but that would probably be to exit those markets or to enter more safe securities f. that were to be the case tomorrow, again, you would be headed to our staples neighborhoods rjs the dividend producing neighborhoods, and the exception of utilities given their hit in this storm. look, it's the end of the month. we've been off two days. tell be an interesting day to watch. >> tom: very interesting. do you wind up buying, though, if you see the initial reaction moving lower? i guess if you're moving away from defensive areas are you looking for growth and where are you going to

. it takes a whole mix of people whether it's the department of defense and even fema having roles to play in that. bob fenton, the assistant chief of fema, used to be the division chief in division 9. he is no stranger to this area, born and raised here, this is his home and so he does have a care and an interest in this community and beyond. and so with that it is hard to fill being his replacement at the regional level because not only to fill his shoes all the great work he did in this region, but also because when you see the size difference, it's a little hard to fit in there. but this this i want to introduce bob fenton, the response head for fema coming in from dc to help support this and moderate the panel. thank you. (applause). >> well, appreciate it. appreciate the opportunity to be back with friends and back in san francisco. and i appreciate the opportunity to be your lunch speaker. as i always say, lunch is one of may five most important meals of the day so thank you for that. let me introduce my panelists. here to my left, we have a great group here to talk about stor
again. the country's economic growth is expected to top 12% this year. japan self defense forces and u.s. military will hold their training exercise in waters off okinawa prefecture. they were to practice a land mag nufr, but it has forced military plan tires take a less direct approach. the drill is part of a large scale exercise that starts next week. commanders want to enhance the defense of southwestern islands. in italy they plan to hold a drill on an uninhabited island. they want to rehearse retaking territory occupied by enemy forces. government officials decided last week not to send troops ashore. they want to avoid raising tensions with china. the two countries, are feuding over the senkaku island and uninhabited chain in the east china see, controlled by japan. the beach landing is off, japanese and u.s. personnel will still practice together. troops will board landing craft, and coordinate with air support. >>> artists face a fundamental choice in their work whether to depict what they see in their imagination or the realities of daily life. this question has arrived late i
to this at the highest level, leon panetta, secretary of defense said we don't want to attack iran. we hope that israel will not attack iran. but israel is a sovereign country, and have to make their own decisions about what they will do. you might ask what the reaction would be if you reverse the cast of characters. those of you who have antiquarian interest, you may remember there is a document called "the united nations charter" foundation of modern international law, which bars the threat or use of force in international affairs. there are two rogue states, the nine states and israel, which for him or which regard the charter and international law is just a boring relevance, so do what they like. and that is accepted. these are not just words. there is an ongoing war including terrorism, assassination of nuclear scientists, economic war, u.s. threats which have cut iran out of the international financial system. western military analysts identify what they call weapons of finance as acts of war, the justify violent responses when they are directed against us, that is. the united states is openly ca
into the institutional arena in terms of forces stationed here in the united states as it would relate to defense support to civil authorities. i think that's primarily -- this is not a primary mission for us. it's something that we do pay attention to, of course, as we deploy overseas. not necessarily forces we have here in the states. we do understand immediate response, rolling out the gate to help our neighbors in an immediate nature, but i think not so much in terms of mobilization and deploying inside our country. so, this is an area where opportunities like san francisco fleet week will allow us for, and i believe at some point really incorporate this in some internal doctrine that will benefit us in the event that this is a requirement inside the u.s. >> thank you. this morning secretary schultz asked one of the panels that was involved in communications and command and control about in this age of information, real-time information, how you're hit with a sea of information and how do you deal with that. something as senior leaders all of you have dealt with. and i believe admiral zukunft used th
to a guilty verdict and the firestorm of criticism some of it by members of his own defense team because the distractions could become an accusation. there is going to be no more public finger-pointing it's not going to happen on this defense team. ironically i have to say no he said when asked if he mr. brodsky. conflicting testimony and the civil suit filed by the victim of a violin to bar room beating in 20 07 shue return to the stand today followed by witnesses of chicago police we are in the newsroom now with today's developments the question for jurors is was there a police cover-up in the case today to high-level members of the chicago police department contradicted each other's testimony in court. first on the stand this afternoon was deputy superintendent debra kirby who was questioned about misdemeanor compliance per detectives had him sign kirby said we shouldn't have had her sign a misdemeanor complaint because we were going after felony charges she was talking about felony charges she said she wanted right away against off-duty chicago police officer anthony of ponte who wa
lights. he says he couldn't tell who was there and they didn't identify themselves so he went into self-defense mode. >> certainly didn't put his hands on them. they however put their hands on him and knocked him down and they're cowards. >> reporter: now, both sides in this confrontation claim that they were afraid for their lives yet neither one called 911 immediately. but this morning, mr. whelan did notify police and filed an assault and battery case against mr. derole low and as of an hour ago police were investigating this case. >> just to clarify, if the signs are on his yard, they have a right to do whatever they want if it's on their property? >> reporter: that's right. you can throw it away on your property. but the big question is here, why did mr. whelan take them to a dumpster several blocks away from his own home? i asked him that. he said that he didn't want the evidence lying around in his dumpster because that would be an obvious thing that he had been stealing other signs so he didn't want to do that. went in a secret place and apparently got surprised. >> i see. all right. le
of defense we'll reimburse you for that. >> cenk: michael, as you i hear you say that, that has to be the most obvious thing in the world. i can't imagine any of administration disagreeing except it turns out you guys did under the bush administration. does that go to show that nobody was in charge? there was wide disarray here. how can you have rumsfeld saying no or even having a debate for six hours on whether to send helicopters during hurricane katrina? isn't that very damming of how george bush ran that white house? >> it is damming as i have said, since the day i left. actually, since before then. if you went back and you found there is a march 2003 memo from me to tom ridge. gave the same memo later to michael chertoff that said if you keep fema this position and you keep this command structure that currently exists, fema will fall. it is exactly what we did. you now have this huge bureaucracy that fema is a part of. now, that said, congress has tried to correct it. i think congress learned from katrina t
agency. we also heard a lot about training, understanding ics, understanding dsca and that's defense support of civil authorities. it's the guiding principles for how our armed services are going to support civilians when something happens. and i think those are common across a lot of the themes you are going to hear today and throughout the weekend. so i'd kind of like to take those two off the table because they are sort of gimmes and put it to you, what are the things you told your boss about this exercise and what is something that for next year you would like to see us do? michelle, if you'd start us off. >> so i think that the major task for next year when we do this communications drill, which i hope we continue to do, and i think you mentioned this earlier, we assumed that all of the city's primary communications were online and operational. we used 800 megahertz push to talk radios here. we assumed that system was online and operational and i think next year it would be a really good exercise for us to pull that communications capability out of the picture and use milit
anywhere close to what we know today. so sure we can at the 26 year old defense policy, a very easy fix. but what's going on in obamacare now is going to mean we never have a balanced budget. it's going to mean small business does not grow and we have to start growing this economy. so i'm saying what we have is the best in the world, we can tweak it, we can make a better. we need toward reforms would on all this defensive medicine using the sum state 30% of our daughters. but you don't let any be the perfect a good. >> just to be clear you support return to the system as it was because you have said in the past that you would be opened reform but it sounds like which are suggesting is around the edges and not significant over all wholesale speech that is correct or do not believe in a government takeover of health care but i do believe toward reform is absolutely needed. what we had was the best in the world. you don't let perfect be the enemy of good and end up with awful. >> congresswoman? hochul: that's a rather extreme position to say there's no way to improve our health care system
the fire fighting effort and one somewhat simple but very effective solution was the use of defense connect on line, the dco chat room. basically cal fire personnel, along with all the individual squadrons, all connected realtime able to communicate and coordinate both from the squadron and also on scene. >> well, thank you. let's go ahead and move into relationships. we had a significant discussion yesterday about relationships and again the highlighted and supervisor chiu's comments this morning. how do we ensure they are enduring past the past couple years. >> as general speese said yesterday, we are here for the long time. on the installation side which we coordinate with cal fire and the navy we have annual exercise and we hit that every springtime prior to the fire season. i think what's also, it's important to remember that although it was stressed, the military members are members of the community as well so let's not forget that as far as active duty. although we're transient in nature, sometimes we're in deployment, many of us are home owners and we live in that community.
? that is right, i said stonewalling, is it a cover-up, i talk with former defense secretary, do donald rumsfeld at that, next. ♪ lou: well, let's turn now to developments on benghazi. the white house tonight denying reports it refused to rescue american diplomats in benghazi. the obama administration resisting responsibility, instead blaming the intelligence community for false statements and contradictions. cia director david patraeus director stood up for his agency and his people saying, no one at any level in the cia told anybody not to help those in need. we talk with former defense secretary donald rumsfeld who serve for u.s. presidents, and i ask him about the unusual patraeus statement. >> it is not that unusual if you think back about a week ago when statements out of the white house and the administration seemed to suggest that the intelligence community has been deficient in their work and seemed to be throwing the cia under the boss a little bit. and this reaction back from the cia is, i think possibly reasonably predictable even though as you suggest, it is unusual. lou: in the c
get word tonight that michigan is about to get a defensive and paste from the president. a state he thought he had lock down. we will find that who is expanding the map and give his blessing one week from tonight. lou: thank you. our chief white house correspondent. the campaigns may be at a standstill, but the candidates now have i great deal of work to do. well, much more on the political campaign, hurricane sandy's impact on the selection. it will be talking with the "a-team" and the role of the clintons in this campaign. bill clinton showing up almost everywhere. the administration's less than transparent you of benghazi. best-selling author ann klein. extensive damage through the eastern seaboard, the cost to rebuild a staggering as well. liz macdonald with our report. record-breaking sandy stranding the residence of the country's largest city, forcing the closure of subways, buses, bridges, tunnels. how long before normal becomes normal. former new york governor george pataki joins us next. pataki joins us next. ely. but because of business people like you, things are beginnin

-- [inaudible] and given that we have very recently, only last night, met with the secretary of defense. would the prime minister meet with me and other interested members to discuss this issue? >> i'm always happy to talk to colleagues about this issue, as i know the ministry of defense and the secretary of state is. as he knows, we've had to make difficult decisions to put in place the future structure of the army with 82,000 regular soldiers and a larger reserve of 32,000 territorial army soldiers. i think that is right. clearly we've had to make some decisions about the regiments and battalions, and we were trying to save as many as possible. i think the proposals have taken that into account but, of course, the defense secretary will go on listening to representations. >> [inaudible] >> mr. speaker, will the prime minister confirm that the changes to child benefit due to be introconstitutioned in january -- introduced in january this year, next year, is -- that the cost of that, the overall cost is very much over 100 million pounds? >> the changes that we are making to child benefit where

have some defense contractors as well. security is always a big issue. for example, my parents were both world war ii vetrans. you find a lot of veterans in new hampshire. the important thing is to look at the record in comparison to record. president obama has a great record on national security and taking down the leadership of al qaeda, our enemies. people came into our country and killed 2000 of our citizens. at the same time, look at mitt romney in what he is proposing is trillions of dollars in defense spending that the military is not even asking for. he is looking at the old way of conducting military affairs. he is still talking about the ways the navy operated in 1917, as opposed to the security threats that face us today in the country in 2012, and what is the most effective way of protecting our people and our country in 2012. look at the rhetoric, as opposed to the record. if you look of the record, you will support president obama. host: kathy sullivan with the democratic national committee, thank you for your time. we will continue our conversation about the state of

. they were built by the department of defense. and hud made a great mistake by transferring it to the san francisco housing authority, the most despicable agency in the whole nation. we have crimes being committed like this. a lady and her family bolted and then the unit set on fire. and i can give you a hundred more incidents where people leave, where sewage runs all over the place, where the elderly are put in transit from rehab units. the rehab units are demolished, so that john stewart company can build whatever and our elderly are put in other homes where asbestos fly all over the place and in months they die and you think it's a joke and come up with some ordinance this. is sickening. this is the city named after st. francis. where is the compassion? why aren't we educated on issues? after all the gang injunctions and after everybody has been removed and after so many have died and after a whole community has been bombarded, now we want to come to their rescue at the tail-end? while the john stewart company, the bridge developers, mercy housing and other big developers want this
in this country. we have to immediately implement changes. one thing is to look at our defense carefully. when we spend $300 million a day, we can no longer afford that. we have to do it performance review on each and every department in the federal government to ensure we are getting an effective, efficient government, and that technology is used in order to give a return on taxpayers. that is something that has not have been for the past 36 years. >> i appreciate the farm bureau and their support for may. no question, i have always supported them. they do a terrific job for our farmers across utah and across the country as well. i am the ranking republican on the senate finance committee. that is the most powerful committee in the whole congress. ways and means is the most powerful in the house. if we are going to solve problems for the country, if will be that committee that does that. everybody knows that, and that is one reason, a primary reason, that i running again. other than mitt romney. mitt romney has come out in full support of me. he knows that once he is president, with me as chairm
